Alan has sadly passed away, but the team has kept the magazine running and even moved up in size to A4!.
Featuring pages of dynamic, uplifting, and well-presented content provided by global cadre of impassioned writers and contributors, Blues Matters has become one of the most recognisable Blues magazines in the world.
With every bi-monthly publication, we aim to bring together the music, artists, creators, industry people, and most importantly, the fans who support and sustain the genre.
While the magazine may be headquartered in the UK, we specialise in music from all over the world, has received consistent recognition for its continued dedication to the Blues, an award for “Keeping The Blues Alive” from The Blues Foundation, and is a double inductee of the Blues Hall of Fame.
